XMail Forum > Documentation and Knowledge Base > Build Failure On Freebsd 7

Posted by: pineypl Nov 4 2008, 05:16 PM
Got a fresh install of FreeBSD 7_Release. Grabbed XMail 1.25. Put that into a temp directory, extracted and issued gmake -f Makefile.bsd, it errors out as such:

g++ -o bin/MkMachDep MkMachDep.o -lssl -lcrypto -lkvm -lcrypt -pthread -lc_r
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lc_r
gmake: *** [bin/MkMachDep] Error 1

Not sure what/why is failing, if someone has a clue-bat for which to smack me, I am ready and waiting. wink.gif

gmake -version states : GNU Make 3.81

To answer my own post, as I often do. blink.gif

I found that merely removing the -lc_r from the Makefile.bsd was all that was needed. I could not find any reference to what the -lc_r did for the gmake, but it was causing a problem. Once it was removed, the build continued and I can run XMail.

Again and as usual, thanks!
